Shah Jahan: The Rise and Fall of the Mughal Emperor

Shah Jahan was the ruler of the Mughal empire, his name translating literally from the Persian as 'King of the World'. After ruthlessly suppressing his rivals, he went on to promote Mughal artistic and architectural achievements to the zenith of their creativity. He is responsible not only for the Taj Mahal - the tomb to his beloved wife Mumtaz - but also for the Pearl Mosque, the Red Fort, Jama Masid in Delhi, the Shalimar Gardens of Kashmir and the priceless Peacock Throne.
